The podcast America’s Democrats features a segment on The Suffragents at minutes 18:51 to 29:10.
The Constitution doesn’t say anything about sex – though the Declaration of Independence promoted the pursuit of happiness – but for the past hundred years or so, courts have been in our bedrooms. Law Professor Geoffrey Stone has the low-down. One hundred years after women won the right to vote, professor Brooke Kroeger reveals the role that men – or “suffragents” – played in the movement. And commentator Alexi McCammond of Axios talks with Peter Ogburn on the Bill Press Show about the friction between Trump and Congress.
